Greetings unto the West,
Our good knight marshal, Lord Jasper, posted the following (see
below) letter to the Bonwicke list. It is his hope, and ours, to
recapture some of the grandeur of the days of old when fighter
practices in Bonwicke were like small events. This is not a
tournament, just what we hope will become normal practices in
Bonwicke. We would welcome any and all that wish to travel here and
join us in this endeavor.
This is, of course, dependent on the weather. I am currently looking
out my tower window and witnessing the Barony covered in a blanket of
white. If Western weather follows its normal course, this will all be
gone by Sunday and the weather will be warm. If this is not the case,
if there is snow on the ground or the winds are biting, then we will
postpone this venture until next week.
We look forward to seeing you,
This coming Sunday Feb. 15th will mark the first of hopefully many
new and improved gatherings for Bonwicke at our Sunday practice site.
Each and every one of the populace is encouraged to bring any
pavilions, friends, Arts and Sciences projects, heraldric banners and
period games to the park this Sunday beginning at 2pm. Fighters both
heavy and light are encouraged to bring their armor and weapons to
grace the fields of the site which is sure to be surrounded by
pagentry and lovely ladies for which to fight for. I challenge each
and every current populace member of Bonwick to bring a friend to
this gathering on Sunday. Drummers bring your drums, belly dancers
bring your... bellies! This is not going to be your average run of
the mill fighter practice. There will be fighting for sure but I also
expect to see lots of color and costuming as well as period
activities. The magic of the game here at home needs a jump start and
this is it! I am hoping to bring back the Sundays from the days of
old, when Sunday was not just for fighters but was for everyone. I
will be onsite at 1:30 to set up the Baronial Pavilion any help would
be appreciated. I hope to see everyone there.
Lord Jasper Codrington
Baronial Knight Marshal
PS: I will be holding the field against all challengers.
